Exclusive Preview: Poogurtory – New Self-Published Comic from Jenny Robins Acts as a Spin-Off from Her Acclaimed Graphic Novel ‘Biscuits (assorted)’

https://ift.tt/3d9p6bF

We have an exclusive (unsurprisingly!) preview today from Broken Frontier team member Jenny Robins from her new self-published comic Poogurtory, a spin-off from her lauded debut graphic novel Biscuits (assorted), published by Myriad Editions. It follows two of the breakout characters from that book – the scatalogically obsessed Rosa and Danni – through the pandemic via their phone texting conversations. Inventive in presentation, and full of the amiable observational humour that made Biscuits such a hit, it’s a welcome return to the book’s world and its characters.

It’s also an excellent piece in terms of recording the everyday realities of the pandemic; those smaller but no less human moments that readers will encounter in these pages with a resonant familiarity. It’s a story of adapting to a new way of life, watching the world you know changing fundamentally around you, dealing with the existential angst wrapped up in a major global event, and the importance of comparing your poo with a good chum. And it’s also Jenny Robins at her irreverently witty best.

Here’s how Jenny describes the book:

Rosa and Danni are some of the most often commented on characters in Biscuits (Assorted). People often confide in me that they too, have a poo friend, or wish they did. Anyway this is some extracts of what they got up to in the Covid times. It is not particularly inspirational. I see it rather as a record of an imagined, fairly adequate, friendship. And really, what more can many of us really hope for in this life? It may also help as a reminder, if you’ve forgotten when in the pandemic some things happened. Not all the things, but definitely some of them. 

Poogurtory is available to buy online here for £4.50.
